1/2 cup quick serving oatmeal
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, finely chopped
3 slices cooked bacon, chopped
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup maple syrup

1. Postion rack on the top third of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine the dates and oatmeal. Mix in the beef. Mix in the chopped onion, bacon, eggs, worcestershire and vinegar. season with salt and pepper. Divide into 4 mounds and, on  a baking sheet, shape into loaves. Place on the upper rack and bake for 45 minutes.
